This is a really awesome jumbo. I love the figures-inside-a-jumbo gimmick.

I notice that the rangers are Changeman with the helmets and buckle but have Jetman's bird chest.

Another rip off - On the box

Another rip off - On the box - the yellow box with H-520 kingman in it is a direct rip of Japanese G1 transformer packaging.

It's basically just all

It's basically just all white plastic, like the Bandai version. Of course, the manufacturer markings now say "Hyun Dae Tong Sang 1991 Korea". But other than that, the only difference from the pic below is that the back of the head is all blue. Nothing special.

He's not just a Man, he's a KING MAN!

Cool review. I dig that it came with the figures as well. Neat gimmick.

Now this is a super robot I can get behind! There's enough play action features here to keep me interested... I find most jumbos to be too plain... that and I'm not old enough to be nostalgic of the shows they aired on. ;)

Oh and I have to disagree with you. I think the japanese box is a lot cooler, but I guess I can see where your coming from since the korean version is a lot more vintage in style. :)

Regarding the box...

To be perfectly honest, it wouldn't surprise me if there is also a bit of bias from me simply because of the disparity in availability between the two toys. I mean, the official Five Robo is everywhere and I see it's box literally every day (even if I didn't own it), whereas the King Man version is something unique and I'd only seen that one picture for the longest time. A sort of case of "absence makes the heart grow fonder", if you will. I wonder if the roles were reversed, if I'd feel differently?

Coolest bootleg I've ever

Coolest bootleg I've ever seen. I normally have no interest in bootlegs, but they actually added coolness by giving it the figures. I too like the funky masks on each of the cockpits.

I know nothing about the show or robot,but it looks like when it's on it's back,excuse me,when it's transformed into vehicle mode,you're supposed to point his toes forward to make a cockpit.
